The best doctor in the Mother Francis System. He's hardworking, caring and willing to go the extra mile for his patients. My family has received excellent care from him and his staff.

Dr Sims was just wonderful. He explained everything, carefully but casually, so that we could understand. He made himself and his staff available 24/7. We wouldn't use anyone else as,

This is the SECOND time I have entered my review. Evently the first is not acceptable for their standards. I would not recommend Dr Sims to anyone. For over a year (3 visits) Dr Sims spent > 5 minutes with me, paid little attention to the distress I was in. 2 of the 3 visits I never saw Dr Sims, just his hurried, annoyed assistant who couldn't get me signed out quick enough. After my February visit I fired Dr Sims and I was fortunate to get the needed heart surgery at another hospital.
